  • Actually there might be something to your rumor. I know they were kicking around the possibility of a Core Academy for CBPO, BP, and IEA. After you complete your core you break off into your specialties. Again nothing in writing but I know that was being kicked around. The more I here about this one DHS theme makes me think this is probably going to happen.
    Don't tase me bro!!

        Hopefully, I'll meet some of you in the academy. Until then, good luck to us all.

        Also, the sense I'm getting is that Southern border ports are hiring more quickly. I'm in line for San Diego. Anyone an officer there? or in the process that has info?
        I'm also in TSU for San Diego. I hit TSU 7/31/09, so six months today. There is a TSU list that pops up periodically and I think that the earliest San Diego TSU date is 4/29/09. Congratulations on getting to TSU - good luck on the wait!

          Don't see this happening but you never know.

              What relationship is there between the President not cutting Homeland security funding and applicants who have their pre-employment steps expire?

              Whatever the reason(s), CBP is not hiring in great numbers at the moment. If I was to guess, I'd say one or a combination of the following reasons are likely:

              1: They could be looking to reduce slightly the total number of CBPOs. Not hiring new people is the easiest way to go about a minor reduction.
              2: They could be looking to tweak the Academy training more. They have a recent history of tweaking past classes. The fewer classes they have in training at the moment, the easier it is to make 'Guinea pigs" out of the trainees.
              3: They could be waiting to the last minute in an effort to see what effects 12D coverage and the upcoming GS-12 upgrades have on retention and attrition. Hiring at the barest number of 2010 CBPOs and bringing them on at last minute gives them more time to figure out how many new hires they really need in the next 18 months.

              What ever the reason(s) for the current hiring slowdown, I doubt funding plays much of a part in it. The 2010 budget has been long approved.
              No relation.....I was just venting at the end of my question. Anyone know what other forms may be causing my pre-employment and background to be expired? Anyone have this happen before? Thanks!!!

              • I got this off of another forum posted by someone else. I don't know if this is legit or not. If it is, I got dibs on class 1021. That means a call sometime around March. You guys can argue over the other dates.

                • Hello all, I've been watching from the sidelines for a while, my account just got activated. I'm in a different situation from most of you that are waiting in TSU, I'm a reinstatement case, not in TSU, but waiting for an EOD since November. I'm a former CBPO from the southern border (West Texas) so if you have any questions about the job, I will be more than welcome to answer them.
                  Back to EOD's, I'm patiently waiting for "the call" like the rest of you.

                        Five years after you got the job. Now it's annual as I was told. Consider it a type of culling of the over populated applicant herd.
